Impact Assessment of WFP's School Feeding Programme

(February 2012 - May 2012)

The Collective has been asked to assess WFP's School Feeding Programme implemented in selected government primary schools across Pakistan. The programme is designed to target areas affected by conflict or natural disasters and to address food insecurity. The programme's development objectives are to increase enrolment, reduce absenteeism, combat short-term hunger and provide income support to families. The project involves reviewing the process and assessing the impact of the programme and will provide recommendations for future school feeding programmes. A sample qualitative survey was carried out in Balochistan, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Punjab and Sindh along with in-depth interviews with all organizations involved to collect information on the process chain from start to end.
